Art for those who didn’t ask for it!
The project CHOREOGRAPHIC CAPTURES was initiated 2008 under the motto "Art for those who didn't ask for it" by JOINT ADVENTURES. The goal is as simple as it is ambitious: to use unconventional means to increase people's awareness of the art forms of film, dance and choreography, to question present types of reception, and to explore new aesthetics.
CHOREOGRAPHIC CAPTURES are films in a 60 second format. The 60-second filmic miniatures experiment with the unlimited possibilities of film and choreography and establish a new genre after dance video. The choreographic short films surprise their audience at different locations.
www.choreooo.org is an interactive platform for all who want to share their passion for choreography and film with an international community. It is meant to give this art form space for artistic input, exchange, networking and presentation, and to advance the interaction between choreography and media art.
Every year, JOINT ADVENTURES invites choreographers, dancers, film and multi-media artists from throughout the world to develop new aesthetic approaches and visual languages for choreography and film in a 60 second format. The deadline is June 30th.The winners are selected by an independent jury of experts active in the international film and dance worlds. There are prizes in two categories: Monetary prizes will be awarded in the amount of up to 2.000,- EUR. In addition, prizes will be awarded in the "cinema" category; this includes the presentation of the winning films with our cinema partners throughout Germany and Switzerland.
CHOREOGRAPHIC CAPTURES is a project by JOINT ADVENTURES – Walter Heun within the framework of ACCESS TO DANCE in cooperation with Das Tanzfest.ch.
